Dental implants are a great way to replace one or more missing teeth. In addition they can also provide a way to stabilize and support complete or partial dentures.
Symptoms & Diagnosis
In the same way that a natural tooth is composed of a root and a crown, a dental implant is made of a titanium post (root) and an artificial abutment and crown. Because of their similar structure, dental implants are able to replicate the appearance and function of natural teeth. Dental implants have many advantages:
- Replace missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth
- Resolve bite problems caused by teeth shifting
- Restore chewing, speech and digestion
- Secure dentures, making them more comfortable
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Many doctors and patients choose dental implants over traditional bridge work because implants do not require the surrounding teeth to be used as anchors.
